How to Decide on the Best Shed Base

How to Decide on the Best Shed Base

Choosing the right shed base is crucial to the long lasting of your garden building as it will help to protect againt water ingress and whether things like the door will shut easily...you can't put a square box on an uneven surface and expect everything to be in working order for long!

Scenario 1 - Combi Base

You have a rear lawn and have not got a hard standing area upon which to place your shed. No problem we have a ready made solution where we place large square plastic pads on the ground which cut into the soft ground and on top of that we build a wooden levelling frame that settles into position on top of the pads. We can then place your shed safely on this level surface.

This is a Combi Base our price is £250 to build and fit this when we install your storage shed, home office or summerhouse.

Scenario 2 - Subframe

Next you may have some old slabs or a concrete base from a previous shed which are solid but uneven, we have the solution we can build a wooden levelling frame upon which to place the shed.

This is a Subframe and it also provides underfloor protection for your garden building, at £165 from Chigwell Sheds.

Scenario 3 - Bearers

You have employed someone to build you a shed base or used your DIY skills. This is great, as long as the base is level the shed can go straight onto it. We can check this for you when we install the shed and rest assured we always carry the Combi Base and levelling Subframe just in case it’s still needed on the day.

In this scenario you may wish us to use Bearers to rest your shed on to raise it off the ground and protect it from damp, rot and sitting in water, our bearers are £40 for example.
